This will mostly only apply to South-Eastern Michigan teams, unless you’re willing to drive quite a distance.
On Saturday the 16th of April we will be hosting a practice field for anyone in the area who would like to participate.
The address of the school (International Academy) is:
1020 E. Square Lake
Bloomfield Hills MI, 48304
The schedule would basically go as follows:
Arrival: 11am-12pm (we cannot use the ISC prior to 12pm)
Set up from 12 to 12:30
and then free practice matches, probably just 3 robots on 3 robots until 5:30. We would then tear down. It is possible that we could in fact utilize the ISC until 8pm, depending on if our sophomores move their dance.
Thanks to anyone who would like to come! It will be a good time to be able to actually practice against other robots and on a full field.
But, to put this on we do need some help
We have 3 side goals a center goal and two auto loaders.
We’re looking for preferably another center goal (in case one breaks), 7 more side goals, and a few more auto loaders. Of course, tetras are always great. We have about 12. And we might need more if we had six robots out there
If teams have dongles we might want those too. The ones for radio, so the robots will actually move.
Of course we can always use more carpet and duct tape to cover the floor. It’s just useful like that.
Anyways, if you and your team are planning on coming please let us know.
Team 1015 is interested in coming (I still have to check with people but im pretty sure they will want to come), but we arent going to nationals, we just want to come meet more people and have fun driving our robot :]
We can bring a center goal and a side goal with us of course.
You lost me(must be something in the Jersey water )… this is for teams (who are going to nationals) that have practice bots? Nobody gets their robot back inbetween competitions. O man, now I wish we had a second bot…
As an update on this event, we have 830 and ourselves in attendence. To make this a full-field event, we need to borrow 4 more side goals and 2 auto-loaders to make it possible, along with many tetras. And most importantly, we would enjoy the company of plenty more teams at this event to have a great time and get in some much-needed practice. Please tell us as soon as possible if you would like to attend, we look forward to hosting this.
